L.A. Noire – Xbox 360 Review

 

L.A. Noire – Xbox 360 ReviewPosted on May 25, 2011 | 1 CommentTime to grab your detective's hat and that notebook.

I so want to get this but I really have to deal with my back log of games first…….well, I say that now, but I'll probably pick it up on a whim sooner rather than later.

L.A. Noire

 

GTA IV saw Rockstar strip away much of the chaotic, tumbledown fun of the series to produce a far more straight-laced affair, effectively taking it from b-movie exploitation to Scorsese seriousness in the process. The result was a game that discouraged...

And perhaps they're right. But those elements do mask for a plethora of failings. And beyond that, there's a more intriguing development going on within L.A. Noire's code. L.A. Noire represents the pinnacle of a certain movement in videogames. Largely,...

L.A. Noire

 

It's very hard to pigeon hole L.A. Noire. It's an open world sandbox game like Rockstar's main franchise, Grand Theft Auto, but not. It's a detective story abut finding clues and talking to witnessing like "CSI", but not. Part shooter, part driving...

L.A. Noire is a fantastic and gripping detective story. Fans of classic cop shows and noir fanatics alike will love the direction this game goes in. A few bugs here and there combined with little motivation to explore means L.A. Noire is just shy of...

L.A. Noire

 

MotionScan technology makes this one of the most immersive gaming experiences on the planet.

L.A. Noire will not be loved by everyone. Many are just too accustomed to the GTA style of gameplay. People who question why Phelps can't kill random citizens on the street will not like what the game has to offer. If you lack patience, this will also...

L.A. Noire gives you a opportunity to jump back in time to the late 1940s and detect your way through a series of enjoyable cases. Some people may find the games accessibility a Pyrrhic Victory but as someone who has never made it through plenty of...

L.A. Noire (Xbox 360) review

 

L.A. Noire is Rockstar and Team Bondi's take on the film noir detective genre, complete with Fedora donning cops, jazz, blues and period news reports on the radio. As always, Rockstar bring their unmatched ability to accurately capture the atmosphere...

…I think by that logic Manhunt 2 is The Phantom Menace.

L.A. Noire – Review

 

When Grand Theft Auto III hit store shelves it became a revolutionary title.  We can look back at that game as the start of the “sand box” genre.  As soon as GTA III exploded in popularity a genre was born and not only did the GTA series flourish but...

L.A. Noire Xbox 360 Review

 

If you sat down and played any Grand Theft Auto game for an hour, chances are, during that time, you would steal a car, kill a few people and cause general mayhem. In L.A. Noire, during that same time span, you have more chance of going to a crime...

Huge step forward technically ; Mature, engaging storyline ; Breathing open world ; Unique gaming experience unlike anything else ; Interrogation scenes are fantastic ; Slow-paced approach allows for a more thorough experience

A few graphical hiccups ; Shooting not up to scratch ; It is not GTA which could put some people off ; Car damage is pretty poor

L.A. Noire

 

Making a case for brainy gaming

Facial tech is amazing ; Skillfully handled action ; Stunningly convincing setup ; Never lets you fall behind

Clunky, disappointing ending

Surprisingly simple, but still fascinating

There's a crime being committed in L.A. and it?s up to Games Xtreme to put the evidence together, is L.A. Noire worth the wait? Hell yes ? read on and find out why.

L.A. Noire is one of those games that come along once in a blue moon, thoroughly engaging from start to finish and packed with value. It redefines the genre and pushes the bar beyond the norm. Buy it now.
